In a special selection from the vault, a talk by Brad Warner from Lammi, Finland where he reads and discusses his classic article "Enlightenment and Cat Poop," about letting go and taking the Big Dump. It's a talk about what is real, what is important, and in a teaching of no self, what the heck are we supposed to do with these persistent persnickety personalities of ours? Our Finnish friends push Brad to go deep and answer the big questions such as, what keeps us clenching our buttholes in the first place, what's the problem with being clever, what fundamentally are we, when is it a good idea to take a break from zazen, what should we do if we find things we don't like about ourselves in zazen, and how do we balance good and evil?
